warhammer 1 - The biggest changes and additions since release of Vermintide 2 (PC)

🐀 New Content

(DLC) Shadows over BögenhafenAugust 2018

  • 2 maps
  • Unique hats, recolored outfits and illusions with purple glow available in Lohner's Emporium (50 shillings each)


(DLC) Back to UbersreikDecember 2018

  • 3 remastered maps from Vermintide 1
  • 1 challenging secret map, which needs to be unlocked by completing puzzles
  • 1 weapon for each of the five characters


(DLC) Winds of MagicAugust 2019

  • 1 map
  • 1 weapon for each of the five characters with some career restrictions
  • (race) Beastmen – 6 new enemy units
  • (gamemode) Cataclysm – new difficulty above Legend
    • No new loot (rewards are Legend vaults)
    • Couple new character frames for completing maps
  • (gamemode) Weaves

    This seasonal gamemode consists of short missions of increasing difficulty. The missions use pieces of old maps with a new objective (kill enemies, cap a point, deliver an item). Each mission is influenced by one of the eight winds of magic. The wind changes the look of the mission and adds a modifier, which adds a twist to the gameplay. The gamemode has separated progression from the main game.

  • 3 maps
  • Funded by Lohner's Emporium (see below)


(DLC) Grail KnightJune 2020

  • 5th career for Markus Kruber <link to lore>

  • DLC sold in two parts, one for gameplay and the other for cosmetic items + challenges (note: most cosmetic items need to be unlocked through challenges or Lohner's Emporium)

Grail Knight is too proud to use ranged weapons, instead opting to carry two melee weapons. GK can provide solid damage, crowd control with a shield and support for his team in the form of duties (new mechanic).
